Maul is the one for me ... at least it is something new and different.

They're kind of cute but I really don't know why manufacturers keep dicking around with these obscure "morphed"/huge-headed side-lines like the Chubbies and Deformed and Medicom and bobbleheads and so on. ???

Well according to RS, the Mighty Muggs are being shown at Fan Days and are still planned for retail release in January.

These are still available, instead of putting all 8 figures in a case and selling it that way they just split it into two assortments.
The most prized possession of my entire star wars collection is my Sega Trilogy Special Edition Pinball Machine.

Found these silly things at one of my local WMs tonight, for $9.96 a pop.  They had Han, Chewie, and Boba, and possibly more prior to my arrival.  I passed on 'em, since the last thing in the world I need right now is to delve into another new line of crap.  But they're out there finally, if you're interested...

I've seen those same three at Target here as well (Han, Chewie, Boba), and actually got the Han and Chewie as a Christmas gift.  They are definitely a bit different, but kind of neat at the same time.  I have to say that the packaging was kind of spiffy, with the character's "face" as the top of the box.  I'm not sure how well they will sell at mass retail though, with the size (around 6" probably) and price ($10).  Seems more like a specialty market/online store type of thing, but I guess we'll see.  I don't intend to get anymore, but I kind of like the Han and Chewie just for something "different" in the collection I guess - since I can't afford a lot of the overseas stuff.

I'll be getting the Maul at least. They truly are a niche' market. But one that is nice at a price that is pleasing. Be good to see how this goes. I wish it luck.

I got Chewbacca the other night and it looks like this angry sponge cake thing I see on the internet.

More a milk chocolate version of it, but still very similar.

I dig it.

I saw these things today for the first time.  I gotta say, you guys are welcome to them.  I can't help but think in about six months you're going to regret it though.  As a gift, I'd probably keep one but I won't be paying for any.

Yeah, I'm not into the line Brent...  Just wanting one or two for the desk, kind of a thing.  THe line, as far as I'm concerned, isn't much better than Choppers or anything else.  It can go away and I'm content.  I think at this point I may be content with only Chewbacca...  He's freaky looking like that cake, so I'm cool with that.  Fett and Vader aren't quite as "cute" looking.

The line is not bad... it appeals to those who are into the Urban Vinyl scene... the price is way right as most vinyl pieces are $30 and more...

I personally only want a Maul... And I am done.  ;)
